Finding Nemo: The Musical (Disney’s Animal Kingdom) – Part 4

*Sung lyrics in bold.

(Continued from Part 3. Curtains close on E.A.C. MARLIN and DORY ad lib.)

MARLIN
Now, on to the harbour!

DORY
Uh, 42 Wallaby Way, Sydney, right?

MARLIN
Yep, we just gotta swim straight.

DORY
Oh, hey—How ’bout we play a game?!

MARLIN
Okay…

DORY
Okay! I’m… thinkin’ of something orange and small…

MARLIN
It’s me.

DORY
Right! Okay! Ooh, it’s orange and small.

MARLIN
It’s me.

DORY
Okay, Mr. Smarty Pants.

MARLIN
Mm-hmm.

DORY
Now, it’s orange and small with white stripes.

MARLIN
It’s me. And the next one—just a guess—me!

DORY
Okay, that’s just scary.

(Blackout. Lights up on OCTOPUS MOM and her OCTOPUS BABY.)

OCTOPUS MOM
Did you hear about that poor little clownfish father whose son was taken from the reef?

OCTOPUS BABY
Mom? Mom? Mom? Mommy? Moooom??!

OCTOPUS MOM
Not now, sweetie!! Mommy’s only got eight hands!

(Blackout. Lights up on two LOBSTERS with Boston accents.)

LOBSTER #1
He went to three ferocious sharks. He’s wicked scared. But what does he do? He goes and blows ’em up!

LOBSTER #2
Wow! Now that’s a tale!

LOBSTER #1
(Referencing his tail.) Why, thank you!

LOBSTER #2
I, uh, didn’t mean it that way…

(Blackout. Lights up on two sword-fighting SWORDFISH.)

SWORDFISH #1
I heard he went face to face with a jellyfish.

SWORDFISH #2
You heard incorrectly old chap. It was an entire jellyfish forest.

SWORDFISH #1
Be that as it may, he escaped unharmed.

SWORDFISH #2
He may have, my good man. But will you?

SWORDFISH #1
Touche.

(Blackout. Lights up on two flying PENGUINS.)

PENGUIN #1
And then this whale comes along and takes him straight to Sydney Harbour and shoots him out his spout! Isn’t that amazing?

PENGUIN #2:
That is amazing! Wait a minute. We’re penguins… We can’t fly!

PENGUINS (Falling)
Ahhhhh!!!!

(Curtain opens on the tank.)

NIGEL
Nemo! Nemo! Your dad’s been fighting the entire ocean looking for you!

NEMO
My father? Really?

NIGEL
He’s travelled hundreds of miles! He’s made friends with whales and sea turtles! And he’s battled sharks and jellyfish!

NEMO
Sharks? That can’t be him.

NIGEL
Sure it is. It’s Marlin, the little clownfish from the reef!

NEMO
Whoa!
That’s my dad!
I knew all along!
Underneath he’s really brave and strong.
He’s on his way now,
And I’m so glad
Of all the fish in the ocean,
That’s my dad!

NIGEL
Word is, he’s in Sydney Harbour right now! I’ll go find him!

(A net reaches into the tank.)

GILL
Nemo! Look out!

NEMO
Gill! Help me!

GILL
Everybody jump in!

(The TANK GANG all gets into the net.)

TANK GANG
Together!
We swim together!

(The net is taken away.)

Yay!

(Theme from Psycho plays and Darla is seen.)

TANK GANG
Oh no! Darla!

(Theme from Psycho plays again. A plastic bag goes into the tank and traps NEMO.)

NEMO
Gill!

(Theme from Psycho plays again.)

P. SHERMAN
Happy birthday, Darla.

DARLA
Fishy!

NIGEL
Nemo! I found your father!

MARLIN (Entering)
Nemo?!

DARLA
Fishy! Fishy! Wake up, Fishy!

DORY
Oh no!

(NEMO goes belly-up in the bag.)

MARLIN
No!! We’re too late!

DORY
Hey, I’m so sorry.

MARLIN
It’s over. Nemo’s gone.  I couldn’t—I’m going home, now.

DORY
Wait! Where ya goin’?

MARLIN
Dory, if it wasn’t for you, I never would have made it here.  So thank you.

DORY
Wait. Stop! No one has ever stuck with me this long before. Please, don’t go away! Please.

(Sound of gurgling.)

NEMO
Whoa! Whooooaaa! (He appears from the drain.) Dad!!

MARLIN
Nemo?

NEMO
Dad!

DORY
You’re alive!! And you are…?

MARLIN
This is Dory. She helped me find you! I thought I’d lost you—I saw you belly-up!

NEMO
I wasn’t dead! I was just pretending so they would flush me down the drain!

MARLIN
Thank goodness, you’re safe.

SCHOOL OF FISH
(Entering from the drain.) Swim away! Swim away!

(DORY gets caught in a net along with several other FISH.)

DORY
Ah!! Get us out! Get us out!

(NEMO swims toward the net.)

MARLIN
Nemo! You get back here!

NEMO
I know what to do!
We have to save Dory!

MARLIN
I have to think of you!

NEMO
But I’m small enough to get in there.
Dad, I have a plan!

MARLIN
You think that you can do these things, but—
I know you can.

NEMO
Tell everybody to swim down!
Together.
Swim down together!

MARLIN
You heard my son!

MARLIN AND NEMO
Together.
We swim together.

DORY
Just keep swimming.
Just keep swimming, etc.

MARLIN AND NEMO
Together.
We swim together!

ENSEMBLE
Swim together, swim together, etc.

MARLIN
Swim down!!

NEMO
That’s my dad!

MARLIN
That’s my son!

ALL
Together.
We swim together!
Aaaahh!!

(The net breaks apart, releasing the fish.)

MARLIN
Dory, are you okay?

DORY
Yeah. Why wouldn’t I be?

(MARLIN sees NEMO unconscious on the floor.)

MARLIN
Nemo? It’s okay. Daddy’s here. Daddy’s got you.

(NEMO coughs and wakes up.)

NEMO
Daddy?!

MARLIN
Nemo!!!

NEMO
I don’t hate you.

MARLIN
Oh, no. No! I’m so sorry, Nemo. Hey, guess what?! I met a sea turtle and he was a hundred and fifty.

NEMO
A hundred and fifty?! But Sandy Plankton said that—

MARLIN
Sandy Plankton?! Do you think after what I’ve been through, I don’t know as much as Sandy Plankton?

NEMO
So tell me, Dad,
What’s it like to cross an entire sea?

MARLIN
Well, son I don’t know.
Let’s go home together,
Then you’ll tell me.

DORY
Wanna make it three?

LITTLE FISH (Entering)
Time for school! Time for school!

DORY
I go to school?

MARLIN
Not really.

MR. RAY (Entering)
Climb aboard explorers!

MARLIN
Now, go and get some knowledge!

DORY
And come home when you’re done.

NEMO
Don’t worry—I’ll be careful!

MARLIN
But remember to have fun!

MR. RAY
Everybody, find a buddy!
Nemo, that means you.

NEMO
Wait!
There’s something I forgot to do.

(Swims back to MARLIN.)

Love ya, Dad!

MARLIN
I love you too, Son. Now go have an adventure!

ALL
In the big, blue world,
We’re gonna go explore!
In the big, blue world.
Things we’ve never seen before!
What’s waiting out there,
We can never know!
In the big, blue world—

We’re ready to go!
(In the big, blue world!)
We’re ready to go!
(In the big, blue world!)
We’re ready to go!
(In the big, blue world…)

DORY
Bye, Elmo!

MARLIN
Nemo!

NEMO:
Bye, Dory! Bye, Dad!

MARLIN
Bye, son.

(NEMO swims off. Blackout. Curtain call.)

CRUSH
Just go with the flo-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-ow.

ENSEMBLE
(That’s the only way to do it. Just get on over to it.)

CRUSH
Go with the flo-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-ow.

ENSEMBLE
(That’s the only way to do it. Just get on over to it.)

CRUSH
Go with the flo-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-ow!

ENSEMBLE
Go with the flow!

CRUSH
When you’re raising sons and daughters,
It’s like surfin’ the muddy waters.
Whoa, whoa, whoa!

ENSEMBLE
Go with the flow.
Go with the flow.
Go with the flow!

Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa!

(Applause.)
